A Scout is Reverent

Scout Sunday, Scout Shabbat and Scout Jumuah

On Feb. 8, the Boy Scouts of America celebrates the day it organized in 1910. It’s a date officially known as Scouting Anniversary Day.

But this is more than an excuse to celebrate another year of Scouting adventures. It’s also when packs, troops, crews, and ships are asked honor a Scout’s “duty to God.”

Through faith-based celebrations known as Scout Sunday, Scout Shabbat, and Scout Jumuah, Scouts can show their appreciation to the chartered organizations, host organizations, and their personal religious organizations that give so much.

While the dates of these celebrations vary each year, each one is an opportunity for Scouts to publicly demonstrate the 12th point of the Scout Law: A Scout is Reverent.

That might mean an act as simple as wearing the full field uniform to worship services. It might mean participating in services by doing a reading, singing a song, or presenting religious emblems and awards to Scouts and Scouters. Or it might be something as grand as a service project to benefit a religious organization in the community.

However you choose to celebrate, it’s essential this year to do so safely. Please note the BSA Covid Guidelines as well as being aware of the religious organizations policies. 

Bryan on Scouting gives some good information on these important dates.
